We sold out of our Thursday date, so we added 4 more spots on Friday Feb 8th!
Join us at Waxwing for a special night! I will be taking 4x5 ruby red ambrotypes from 5-7pm at the Waxwing on North Avenue. An ambrotype has the same chemical process as a tintype, only its on a glass plate. As a special for Valentines Day, I will be shooting on deep red glass. This makes the image even more special, and has a beautiful depth to the image which I prefer over the metal. Each plate needs to be washed, dried, and varnished before it is shipped to you. So you will be able to see the image immediately, but will receive it in the mail a few days later, just in time for Valentines day!
We will have bubbly and sweets for you to enjoy during your 30 minute session. No more than 2 people in the photograph, and I encourage individual portraits over couples. I find individual portraits more powerful, and focusing on one persons skin tone is better for development and lighting. Please show up 5-10 minutes early for your session!
